Following the leader is definitely something preschoolers love and understand. What they need to learn is that throughout life there will be countless choices of leaders they can follow. We want them to know who the best leader is to follow. And that is Jesus! Jesus is the best leader we can follow!
By the end of this month, when we ask preschoolers who can you follow, our prayer is that they will answer, I can follow Jesus. Why? Because Jesus loves us, and He will always lead us in the best way.

This month we have been studying Jesus' parables. An illusionist's motto is "magicians never reveal their secrets." That is because once we figure out the mechanics of how each illusion is performed, the act loses its "magic."
Jesus however, shares with us all the trade secrets of being in a relationship with God and serving the Kingdom of God. Often times, it was through teaching with parables that these 'secrets" were revealed, secrets such as: I can be part of something big, God will never stop loving me, God made me to do great things, and God forgives me. Of course, we quickly learn that these aren't secrets at all and that we should share it with EVERYONE!
